France will supply 100 anti-tank missiles to Lebanon, a government official said Friday, confirming a deal that raised concerns in earlier this year, AFP reported.

"Prime Minister Saad Hariri was informed on Wednesday of the French decision to supply the army with 100 ... HOT missiles that will be used by the military's Gazelle helicopters," the official told AFP.

The official confirmed that "the missiles will be delivered before the end of February and are being given with no conditions attached."

A letter to that effect had been sent to Hariri, the office of French Prime Minister Francois Fillon confirmed.
